Lawyers are people too, just like the rest of us. Isn’t it time to stop picking on them?
Was not Shakespeare's character actually a revolutionary who advocated “...let's kill all the lawyers”—because he knew removing them was the surest way to chaos?
Although he's been a government lawyer, a private practitioner, a law professor, co-founder of a law school, the author has never prevented a rebellion, or saved the life of a notorious murderer, nor won millions for an injured worker or a gigantic corporation, but he has done what most lawyers do—try their best to solve real problems for real people, some happy, some sad, some funny, some strange. And in his breezy way Gafford tells how he often succeeded—and sometimes did not—at the same time showing that lawyers are real people like the rest of us.
